It was a slightly awkward moment for Doja Cat as she had a moment with the press during the American Music Awards on Sunday. The singer-rapper took home two wins for Best New Artist and Best Female Soul/R&B artist, but it was what happened backstage that captured attention after she was asked about her friend Megan Thee Stallion. Doja was answering questions from the media when a journalist wanted to know what she would say to the “naysayers” who have accused the Good News rapper of lying about being shot by Tory Lanez.
The question seems random considering Doja hasn’t said anything about the incident in the past and isn’t involved in it whatsoever, but she gave an answer nonetheless. “Um, one, if you are trying to take somebody down for something that you have no idea about, like, one, we should trust her ’cause she’s the Stallion,” said Doja. “And also just…it feels like, I don’t know, it just feels like, why even do that? It’s pointless.”
“I don’t know. It’s a really sensitive topic, too,” she added. “It’s not even like you can just jump in and throw tomatoes. It’s not the environment for that kinda thing.” Check out the clip of Doja giving her opinion about Megan Thee Stallion below.
